The iraq war may not be race based but it has added to a prejudicial impact on our society and negative views on muslims/islam.
Your taking what I said to heart as an attack on white powers, I'm just refuting your use of "White powers" not invading counries as unsupportive to your Main point which You didn't even State until this post.
In case you didn't notice but I even said that it's not
And, my God, so what if they have a company in Africa, u know how many capitalist countries have companies getting diamonds from Africa, blood diamonds??? Why do u assume its only the "white, EU, US, caucasion" doing this?[/quote]
I never assumed I started England which is a fact.
If you asking why I mentioned this *Here I'll assume since your not being clear*
It's in response to you saying White countries don't invade It's the 21st century.
We did do the philipinnes a favor, but then revoked that favor by abusing all but conquering them. We basically just replaced japan. The same with china, although we never Invaded in china thus we did do them a favor.

Ok, im no history major but whether or not we "owned or pushed around" the Philipinnes is not the point. The point is that we did them a favor by eliminating the Japanese threat against them. As for the Chinese, how can u say we didnt save their asses, as they obviously werent doing anything about the japanese, not enough anyway. We saved BOTH China and the PHilipinnes, not JUST to save them but to illiminate the threat to us and the world. So in that sense, we DID save them. What our MAIN intentions were is NOT the point.
And i specifically said that Iraq was PART of the War on Terror, NOT an example of "white aggresssion or racism". Damn, did you not read that? Tell me then how Iraq is an example of that.
Also, youre saying that England isnt invading anymore because they ALREADY looted colonies back in the 1800s, etc.??? Do u realize how retarted that logic is? UK isn't invading countries anymore because times have changed and EU and UK doesnt tolerate that anymore. England put a stop to barbarac executions over 100 years ago, why? Because they don't tolerate that anymore. NOT because they don't have a use for it anymore. Hence, they didnt stop looting colonies bc they ran out of resources, the stopped bc they along with the world wouldnt tolerated it anymore. DUH
And, my God, so what if they have a company in Africa, u know how many capitalist countries have companies getting diamonds from Africa, blood diamonds??? Why do u assume its only the "white, EU, US, caucasion" doing this? You want to talk about exploitation and slavery, just look to Thailand for child sex slavery or to Sudan where slavery is legal - they're not white.
The point im trying to make to so many knuckle heads here is that there's a false idea that "racism, exploitation, expansionism, greed, etc" is a majorally WHITE ideal, and not an ideal shared in every nation in the world.
